Bike Safety

It is recommended that youth be accompanied by an adult. A number of factors can be taken in consideration for younger riders such as finger reach for the brake levers, finger and forearm fatigue, awareness and self-control while riding in steep exposed terrain. Trail Difficulty ratings are relative to Snowbird terrain only.

Know the Code:
